A small-town restaurant that serves breakfast all day. Has good biscuits and gravy. Food comes quickly and everyone is friendly.

From the hostess to our server (and the chef) the service was top notch. I normally don't mention the chef, however the food was perfectly cooked. Everything tasted fresh, the hash browns were perfect. Not over crisp & dry like most places. The eggs were right on the money, as well as the bacon. My wife thought the chicken fried... More

Bernie is of Asian heritage who met a local Sparta women and eventually came back to open up Bernies. Forgot where first place was, but later moved downtown.

Great Menu, Great Service with an atmosphere like Grandmas House. It's a simple Diner with food that doesn't disappoint. It has its little quirks, like all the coffee mugs being random. But the portions are generous, the place is clean and the food is delicious. This place is extremely packed on the weekend mornings... I'd try and beat the church... More

Lots of variety options for breakfast each day. Every Tuesday they serve an old fashion turkey dinner with mashed potatoes and dressing, lots of turkey with cranberry sauce.

If really enjoyed this little diner, I got the blueberry cream cheese pancakes and I would highly recommend them! Large portions and good prices, Faribault is lucky to have them.
